Vehicle History[]

Produced from 1970 to 1974, the first generation Dodge Challenger is a pony / muscle car offered in 2 door hardtop, coupe, and convertible body styles. It was also known as the Plymouth Barracuda as they shared the same platform. The Challenger was part of Dodge's potent plan to compete in the muscle car market.
